Creative Confetti: Sketch it Out!

Hello all and happy Tuesday! Being that so many of you love a good sketch, it's time for another one! Are you ready as I reach down into my bag of tricks and throw out this week's Creative Confetti???

HOW TO PLAY: It's as simple as following the sketch below! And, to give you a little creative license, feel free to change shapes or flip the sketch any which way. It's doesn't matter as long as we can "see" the sketch and feel your inspiration! 

Here's a peek at this month's sketch!

And here's a look at my creation! 

This is an oldie but goodie that I created a while back using Power Poppy's Climbing Clematis digital stamp set.  I share because I know that it is always nice having a sample to set your sights on to "see" the little sketch in action!

This card is really pretty easy peasy! I used diecut shapes to get literally every cut. The sentiment is also from the Climbing Clematis digital stamp set and the paper is a mix of Stampin' Up and some scraps from my decorative paper bin. I had a blast coloring this image and really love the vibrant colors. I used my Copic markers, of course, and reached for B60, B63, B66, RV00, G20, G21, G24 and G28. The butterfly was colored with Y35, YR04 and YR07. The whole image was highlighted thanks to RV0000 and R00. Then, when all was said and done, I did accent the little fluttering butterfly with some white gel pen and some sparkle gel pen as well!

Here's a close up for y'all!

And that, my friends, is it! Want to join me this week? Simply create, post and then link up using the linky below! As we always say, if you get those fingers inky and play along, each and every link is an opportunity to win a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop! Woo Hoo!

So, the reason why I didn't have time to create a new card is because July 15th was my daughter's Sweet 16!!! We were a little busy honoring the special day. Funny story -- for her birthday she wanted to go to one of the diner's in town. Why, you ask? Because on the menu they have what's called the "Vacation Breakfast," which consists of a huge slice of chocolate cake AND a chocolate shake - basically you pay for a food coma. Here's a little picture of her face as this beauty was arriving at the table!! LOL!

Ahhhh to be young and not worry about calories! ;-) Well, my sweet stamping friends, I hope you play along with me this week! Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time!
